Obtain the proper collection tubes from the laboratory and fill each tube to the line as indicated. Place the tubes on ice at the bedside.Freeze at -80 C as soon as possible. IF the sample is blood contaminated, the tubes should immediately be centrifuged (prior to freezing) and the clear CSF transferred to new similarly labeled tubes then frozen and stored at -80 C ASAP.
